A Day and a Night and a Day: A Novel
“A stunning new novel....A much better work than John Updike’s post-9/11 foray, Terrorist…I defy most readers to put it down.”
An extraordinary new work of fiction that the New York Times Book Review calls, “Bracing and original,” A Day and a Night and a Day by Glen Duncan is a powerful book for our times. The critically acclaimed author of The Bloodstone Papers returns with a literary blockbuster that examines race, class, sex, death, faith, terror, torture, and modernity with extraordinary insight and intelligence. A Day and a Night and a Day, which salon.com calls, “Gripping…a puzzle box spring-loaded with surprises,” is a monumental feat of exceptional storytelling alive with big characters, huge themes, violence, suspense, and a heart-breaking love story.
